Termites from Yalgoo

Drepanotermes rubriceps

ID Tony Postle on BowerBird 26 Sept 2016

 

I found a hole with antennae showing. I wasn't sure what they were but the insects backed down the hole quickly when I touched the hole with a straw.

 

I came past later and there was a stream of termites running for the hole. It didn't take long for them all to disappear down the hole. I was hoping they would come out later but didn't see them again.

 

I didn't see/take notice of any evidence of termite mounds but thought many of the sticks on the ground had been eaten by termites and covered in sand.

From Yalgoo area. September 2016
